Choosing the project management training provider that is right for you.
Project management training is an investment. As with any investment, you want to be sure it will yield results. With all the project management training available, how do you determine the right provider and courses for you and your organization?
Since 1995 WCP has been developing some of the most popular and successful project management courses available. Combined, these courses have provided learning for over 10,000 participants. How does WCP consistently get it right? Simple: we listen to our customers, develop the courses our customers say they need and we remain open to their feedback. We then have our courses facilitated by some of the best project management trainers and consultants available.
At WCP we are very proud of our associates, many of whom have delivered our courses for over a decade. We prominently feature associate profiles in our literature; they provide consistently excellent results – why wouldn’t we want to show them off?
WCP is a PMI® Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.®), and all project management courses are facilitated by Project Management Professionals (PMP®). Our team includes instructional design experts to ensure our custom courses meet the highest standards of adult education.
From 2000 – 2016 WCP was the primary supplier of professional level daytime project management training at the University of Toronto. During that time, we delivered hundreds of fundamental to advance level PM workshops – helping thousands of course participants achieve their project management career goals (note our University of Toronto courses are now available at both our Toronto and Mississauga locations).
For the past 17 years, we have also been the primary provider of professional level daytime project management training at the University of Waterloo, where we current offer 10 different foundational to advanced project management workshops. These project management workshops may be taken standalone or as part of one of two University of Waterloo project management certificates.
In 2000, WCP was the first to develop a Project Sponsorship course: a 1-day course specifically for senior managers and their critical role in the successful implementation of projects. In 2001 we introduced a 2-day Juggling Multiple Projects course (also known as Taking Charge of Multiple Projects) which we believe to have been the first of its kind in Canada. Often imitated – never duplicated – these courses remain very popular with our clients to this day. Regular newsletters, participation in professional forums and conferences, strategic partnerships, highly personal service, and innovative courses and learning methods – these are just a few examples of how WCP has led the project management training industry in both quality and innovation.
WCP is a private Canadian company. We are proud to have some of the most experienced trainers and consultants working with us. We pride ourselves on our client relationships, our accessibility, and the high level of personal service we offer our clients.
While all project management courses which WCP offers enable participants to earn Professional Development Units (PDUs), at WCP our primary focus is to provide clients with the type of hands-on training that yields tangible benefits where it really counts – on projects. Our 3-day Project Management Essentials course, for example, is designed to provide participants with the most essential tools and skills of project management – to provide clarity among stakeholders, improve the accuracy of estimates, reduce – not create – stress, and make a noticeable difference on actual projects. It is this very tangible value that has helped make the Project Management Essentials course one of the longest continuously offered, foundational 3-day project management courses in Canada. It is this same tangible value we bring to all our courses.
No one company can be an expert in all areas, which is why WCP has elected to partner with some of the top consulting organizations to offer additional services to complement our own. By working closely with qualified, hand-picked partners selected for their expertise and quality, we offer our clients a coordinated approach to creating the right solution. These relationships provide a depth and breadth of services few others can offer.
